Product Description

Wideband Optical Couplers split or couple optical power in two wavelength regions while maintaining a very broad operating bandwidth. Split and coupling ratios are available from 5% to 50%. WBCs are widely considered one of the most cost-effective solutions to optical power management. The WBC is an all-fiber device, based on AFL's fused biconic technology, and is designed and manufactured to meet military and Telcordia® requirements.
